The time has come for one winner to be crowned.
When she was chosen to compete in the Selection, America never dreamed she would find herself anywhere close to the crown--or to Prince Maxon's heart. But as the end of the competition approaches, and the threats outside the palace walls grow more vicious, America realizes just how much she stands to lose--and how hard she'll have to fight for the future she wants.
You are not the world, but you are everything that makes the world good.
Without you, my life would still exist, but that's all it would manage to do.

I'm not a fan of The Elite. I don't like it at all, but I wanted to finish this series because it was only one left (and I just wanted to have that cover). Like I predicted, it isn't amazing. It's quite good that I read it fast.
America, as always, was nominated as the most confusing character. Good part, she wasn't cheating anymore because apparently Aspen didn't cling to her anymore. She always made some ideas that were considered to be amusing and very brilliant, so she looked like the best candidate to be The One. In fact those were not amusing, she tried to be different without making sense. But hey, she was the main character, she was always right.
Aspen suddenly threw his annoying gut, made him not so match for confusing maker, America. Surprisingly I like Aspen in The One. He grew up as a good soldier and nice friend. I even hope for more his story in the book! I think an alien had kidnapped the old Aspen and changed him with a new one. Prince Maxon still crazed over America. I don't see him attractive anymore.
I love the friendship that was built among the Elites. It was refreshing to know their own reasons to be The One. They were rivals, but also friends.
We figured more about the rebel and America got involved with it more. But in the end, they were not important. They were just there to make the ending way more than just perfect because they eliminated the disturber that impeded America to be a queen.
